Course Data Project


Drupal site live

22 January, 2013 by Project Team

The Courtauld is pleased to announce that its new Degree Programmes website is now live.

We have migrated all of the data currently on our Dreaweaver site to the new Drupal system, so to the regular user there will be no perceptible change in service. All pages have a Drupal equivalent, and redirects have been established so that any bookmarks or published links etc. will remain valid.

Our XCRI-CAP course data feed is now available to use licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License at this uri:

There has been some excitement in the JISC community (…!) about the module that we’ve developed as part of the project – University College Falmouth are already using it for their website, and the University of Cambridge are beginning to investigate usage – so hopefully it will have some impact on future admissions. Other projects have developed tools to ‘read’ the course data and publish it on Facebook, Moodle, and Blackboard, while others have developed comparison sites. I’ve been working closely with Plymouth College of Art, Arts University College Bournemouth, and Falmouth on one such site just for arts-based colleges which will launch at the end of the month.

All of this – we hope – will give the Courtauld and its course presentations greater visibility.
